Introduction of Australian Standard steel rails

Australian Standard Rails (AS) are a set of rail profiles that have been designed and constructed to meet the requirements of Australian Standards. These rails are commonly used in various industries and applications and are able to provide excellent performance under various loads and traffic conditions. In this article, we will introduce three commonly used standard rails in Australia, namely AS50 rail, AS60 rail, and AS68 rail, and provide detailed specifications for each rail.

AS50 rail has a weight of 50.6 kg/m and a length of 12-25 m. The rail profile features a symmetrical shape with an equal top and bottom flange width. The height of the rail is 154 mm, the width of the head is 70 mm, and the width of the foot is 127 mm.

AS50 rail is commonly used in light-duty rail systems, including industrial plants and small mining constructions. It is suitable for applications where the load is light and the traffic volume is moderate.

AS60 rail has a weight of 60.6 kg/m and a length of 12-25 m. The height of the rail is 170 mm, the width of the head is 70 mm, and the width of the foot is 146 mm. AS60 rail has a broader head and foot than AS50, which makes it sturdier and more capable of handling heavier loads.

AS60 rail is suitable for both industrial and heavy-haul railway networks. It is commonly used in crane rails, sidings, and transfer decks.

AS68 rail has a weight of 67.5 kg/m and a length of 12-25 m. The height of the rail is 185.7 mm, the width of the head is 74.6 mm, and the width of the foot is 152.4 mm.

AS68 rail is a heavy-duty rail profile utilized for high traffic density and heavy load-bearing applications. It is designed with a larger rail head and foot in comparison to AS60 rail, providing a more stable footing for trains. It is commonly used in mainline tracks, sidings, yards, and other heavy-duty rail applications.

We have the capacity to supply AS50, AS60, and AS68 rails from various manufacturers, and we offer flexible delivery options to meet our customers’ project needs. Our team carefully tests and inspects each rail before delivery to guarantee product quality.

Moreover, our company offers customization services to meet specific customer requirements. Our experienced engineers provide consultation services to assist in designing the appropriate rail systems for each application.

Australian Standard Rails are manufactured to meet the guidelines of the Australian Standards. AS50 rail, AS60 rail, and AS68 rail are widely utilized in different rail applications in Australia. Our company provides high-quality rails that meet specific customer needs, and we prioritize precision and quality in our products.
